What string tension would you recommend for the Dunlop Aerogel 130 squash racquet to maximize power?

-The factory strings came with 48.1 lbs of tension when I measured it with the RacquetTune app. I hardly get enough power because of this. 
-Looking to restring the racquet with Ashaway Ultranick 18g but want to use a tension that would maximize the power I get out of the racquet considering all the factors: string tension, racquet weight etc.

 48 lbs is way too high, I think your app is incorrect. 25 lbs is a fine tension for most any string.
